This is one of my latest installments, where I review a book that I just read recently and talk about its value.
Gorilla Mindset is a book that covers how to train your mindset to become resourceful, confident , mindful, and to have an abundance mentality.
There are 11 chapters in this book, it is not difficult at all to read and understand. What I like the most about this book is that it has practical steps, and isn’t just some ra ra hocus pocus motivation. Continue reading Gorilla Mindset: Book Review
A good way to get good at something is to do it everyday.

I’ve noticed at gyms that people have a defeatist weak training program. How do you know if the training program is weak?
No huffing and puffing in between sets, enough energy to talk to other members at the gym. Endless sets of curls, (curls are great btw I do them about 3 times per week) there are other body parts that need to be trained besides arms.
